A distinguished award given to teachers
in recognition of their dedication and a continued record of excellence
Everyday, all over the country, there is a group of people
that go to work and don't think about personal gain.They can never be
paid their true worth. They go to work not because of the tools they
get to use. Some don't even have the basic instruments that can help
them perform their tasks. They go to work not because of the working
conditions; most, if not all, work in overcrowded rooms. And yet they
have had a major effect on our lives, and they influence most especially
the lives of our children.
These people perform their duties with high hopes that what they do
matters; that what they do can make a difference. In many cases it does.
At times it may not seem so, but this never defeats them, makes them
quit, lets them lose sight of the goal, and never stops the best among
You may ask who these people are. Who could have so much influence?
Who can make a change in the world with just a word or two? Who can take
a shy, lonely kid and with the right amount of love, care and guidance
help him or her see that all things are possible - that dreams can become
a reality - that goals and achievement are worth the effort?. Who has
the ability to shape the minds of our children? Who has the opportunity
to make the leaders of tomorrow?
Who does this with hardly any recognition, usually in poor working conditions
and for very low pay? Who does this everyday?
GREAT TEACHERS DESERVE RECOGNITION!
